Forum: feature_films Subject: Re: Converting MPEG files to DVD ready files

The MPEG-2 files should be DVD compliant. I've been able to import them into DVD-lab and other DVD authoring programs without having to convert the file to another format.

Some DVD authoring problems may have to have MPEG-2 file demuxed - separated into a video file (having one of these extensions: ".m2p", ".m2v", ".mpv") and audio file (having one of these extensions: ".ac3", ".mp2", ".m2a"). DVD-Lab will demux the MPEG file for you. There are many free utilities which will demux the file.

Converting MPEG-2 to another file and back again will reduce the quality of your file, takes a lot of time and will use up drive space.

Hope this helps.
